The Fastest way to break video news: Ask the Bolt

Youtube is definitely one of those sharing sites where users can get news out in a flash. An example is when Usain Bolt won the 200m by shattering the record in 19.19 seconds. The video flooded the YouTube sharing site with millions of people across the world sharing in the news of the fastest man over 200m.

What does this mean for community empowerment? With the proper tools citizens in Communities in Tension could use this medium as a way of sharing breaking news with the world.

He certainly is a lightning bolt! I've been watching the news and he's just broken another record, quite incredible!

Thats true Chris. I wonder if I will stand a chance against him. Perhaps I should set out a challenge to him over YouTube? What you think?
